Crape Myrtle Trees

Our standard crape myrtle trees are at their summer finest right now with profuse blooms in shades of pink, red, white, and lavender.  Pollinators of all kinds flock to these showy panicles of color.  The leaves of some of these varieties have contrasting color through the season, or transition to shades of red in the fall for weeks before winter leaf drop.  Textured, peeling bark of their trunks in shades of gray, tan, and cinnamon also adds to their overall beauty.  These ornamental trees adorn landscapes all over the southern US and thrive in the Texas heat.  Very easy to care for, the only pruning they need is to maintain well-spaced, healthy main trunks and thin out the center to permit sunlight and air flow.  Grown at Creekside in multi-caned format in 15, 30 and 45 gallon sizes, we can help meet all your planting needs!
